I’m a California girl at heart, and I love everything about it, especially living along the coast in Pacific Palisades, where I’ve been for almost 25 years. I grew up in San Marino and graduated from UC Berkeley, where I studied business and psychology. Upon graduation, I returned to my beloved Southern California and worked in commercial real estate for nearly 10 years before starting a family with my husband, Phil, who was raised in Pacific Palisades.
My commercial real estate experience endowed me with extensive knowledge in contract negotiations and how to successfully navigate a tricky deal. It allowed me to develop a keen ability to communicate effectively and negotiate successfully. I place a key emphasis on my relationships with brokers and others in the business. Now that I have fully transitioned to residential brokerage, these skills and perspectives are critical to my clients’ success in their transactions. I believe in dealing with people fairly and honestly. I have a passion for exceeding my clients’ expectations and want to make sure they are far more than just satisfied! Service is paramount to me.
When I take on a project, I jump in with both feet and do whatever it takes to accomplish it. While I strive for success, I want the deal to be a pleasant experience for all involved. I realize that buying or selling a home can be a complicated and often scary endeavor, and I want to alleviate my clients’ trepidations. I have the unique ability to scour high and low for the perfect property. When it is found, and the client says, “This is it; we’ve found home!” I’m thrilled!
I love spending time with my family at the beach, cooking, and playing sports. My favorites are beach volleyball and paddle tennis. Phil and I are very committed to youth sports. Whether it is volleyball, soccer, or flag football, our involvement and commitment in these communities run deep. I have always been very involved with our children’s schools and volunteer to help as much as possible. I adore the Palisades and am happy to call this town our home!
